BRC-X400 (BRCX400)

IP 4K Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera with NDI®|HX capability

Where to buy

Overview

Capture every point of view in 4K with excellent picture quality and efficient IP production workflow
The versatile BRC-X400 PTZ camera is ideal for use in a wide range of environments - from broadcast studios and remote on-air suites to sports stadiums, arenas, houses of worship and lecture halls.

The camera's 1/2.5-type Exmor R CMOS sensor captures broadcast quality 4K images with excellent sensitivity, very low noise and rich, natural colour reproduction. It's complemented by the integrated high-resolution lens that offers a powerful zoom capability up to 80x in Full HD (30x in 4K), with an expansive 70 degree wide angle coverage to capture every point of view.

Efficient IP-based live production is augmented with support for NDI®|HX* (via optional license), allowing flexible configuration with other networked NDI-enabled devices.

Images also can be reviewing remotely via a web browser, with support for RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) and RTMP** (Real Time Messaging Protocol) ensuring smooth, stable streaming of video plus audio (from an optional microphone, available separately) over an IP network.

Installation and set-up is easy, with a new Scene File function allowing the same settings to be applied to multiple cameras. Convenient integration in multi-camera live events is also simplified with genlock support and an 'on-air' tally lamp.
